With so many teams now throwing the football, if you listen closely enough you'll hear whispers that the linebacker position is dying. Yes, that's right, some people are starting to believe that the classic second level defender is on the verge of extinction. They feel that defenses are one day going to be forced to replace linebackers with defensive backs to cover the passing game better.
I'm not sure about that theory, and I hope it doesn't come true because I'm a fan of the LB position. It's fun to watch good 'backers play and to evaluate them. Two of the better linebackers in this 2014 class are Hoza Scott from Texas and Kain Daub from Florida.
Both have their share of 5-star accolades and decorations, as well as being highly ranked. Continuing our 5-star scouting breakdown battle series, let's match these two against one another and see who's the better LB prospect.
